#1. Offer me?" A shrill note of indignation entered her voice. "Young man, there are three things that make Britain great. The first is our inability at playing sports."
How does that make Britain great?"
"Despite the certainty of loss, we try anyway with the absolute conviction that this year will be the one, regardless of all evidence to the contrary!"
I raised my eyebrows, but that simply meant I could see my blood more clearly, so looked away and said nothing.
"The second," she went on, "is the BBC. It may be erratic, tabloid, under-funded and unreliable, but without the World Service, obscure Dickens adaptions, the Today Program and Doctor Who, I honestly believe that the cultural and communal capacity of this country would have declined to the level of the apeman, largely owing to the advent of the mobile phone!"
"Oh," I said, feeling that something was expected. "Oh" was enough.
"And lastly, we have the NHS!"
"This is an NHS service?" I asked incredulously.
"I didn't say that, I merely pointed out that the NHS makes Britain great. Now lie still. - Author: Kate Griffin

#4. Cam scratched his nape. "You know what I don't get? How women can spend the majority of their lives in shopping malls but still say they have nothing to wear." Lydia snorted. "You know what I don't get? How men can spend the majority of their lives playing sports where they're being trampled on and listening to noisy mobs, yet they're put off by shopping, when it's no different." Both males tilted their heads, conceding that. - Author: Suzanne Wright
Playing Sports quotes by Suzanne Wright

#6. I wasn't a huge fan of the comic book, but I definitely was of the cartoon series. I wasn't much for sitting around and reading as a kid, I preferred to be outside running around and playing sports, but I was absolutely thrilled to get the role of Colossus. I don't think I realised how popular the character was until I got the role and started doing some research; it was then that I really fell in love with the character of Colossus myself. - Author: Daniel Cudmore
Playing Sports quotes by Daniel Cudmore

Playing Sports quotes by Mardy Fish

#14. Post-Rehab Advice: 5 Things to Do After Getting Out of Rehab

Getting yourself into rehab is not the easiest thing to do, but it is certainly one of the most important things you can ever do for your well-being. However, your journey to self-healing does not simply end on your last day at rehab. Now that you have committed your self to sobriety and wellness, the next step is maintaining the new life you have built.

To make sure that you are on the right track, here are some tips on what you should do as soon as you get back home from treatment.

1. Have a Game Plan
Most people are encouraged to leave rehab with a proper recovery plan. What's next for you? Envision how you want yourself to be after the inpatient treatment. This is a crucial part of the entire recovery process since it will be easier to determine the next phase of treatment you need.

2. Build Your New Social Life
Finishing rehab opens endless opportunities for you. Use it to put yourself out in the world and maybe even pursue a new passion in life. Keep in mind that there are a lot of alcohol- and drug-free activities that offer a social and mental outlet. Meet new friends by playing sports, taking a class or volunteering. It is also a good opportunity for you to have sober friends who can help you through your recovery.

3. Keep Yourself Busy
One of the struggles after rehab is finding purpose. Your life in recovery will obviously center o - Author: Opiateaddictions

It is the same thing with acting. - Author: Paul Walker
Playing Sports quotes by Paul Walker

#28. As I've mentioned, I am an only child. This makes me a member of the worldwide super-smart-afraid-of-conflict narcissist club. And let me emphasize: afraid of conflict. Since I had no siblings to routinely challenge/hit me and equally no interest in playing sports, I had grown up without any experience in conflict. I therefore had no reason to imagine that confrontation of any kind, ranging from fighting to kissing, was not probably fatal. - Author: John Hodgman

Playing Sports quotes by Lawrence Dallaglio
#33. I've come to think that flourishing consists of putting yourself in situations in which you lose self-consciousness and become fused with other people, experiences, or tasks. It happens sometimes when you are lost in a hard challenge, or when an artist or a craftsman becomes one with the brush or the tool. It happens sometimes while you're playing sports, or listening to music or lost in a story, or to some people when they feel enveloped by God's love. And it happens most when we connect with other people. I've come to think that happiness isn't really produced by conscious accomplishments. Happiness is a measure of how thickly the unconscious parts of our minds are intertwined with other people and with activities. Happiness is determined by how much information and affection flows through us covertly every day and year. - Author: David Brooks
Playing Sports quotes by David Brooks

#46. So, if I'm no cheerleader of sports, why write a chapter about it? Sports do have some positive impact on society. They solve problems, such as how to get inner-city kids to spend $175 on shoes. They serve as a backdrop for some of our most memorable commercials. And they remain the one and only relevant application of math. Not only that, but we have sports to thank for most of the last century's advances in manliness. The system starts in school, where gym class separates the men from the boys. Then those men are taught to be winners, or at least, losers that hate themselves. - Author: Stephen Colbert
Playing Sports quotes by Stephen Colbert
#47. As a performing group, the Beatles began by playing old rock favorites, for dancing, to tough audiences in Liverpool and Hamburg. When they began writing seriously, they discovered that they couldn't compose in the early American rock tradition. - Author: Jon Landau

#50. The second simultaneous thing Reacher was doing was playing around with a little mental arithmetic. He was multiplying big numbers in his head. He was thirty-seven years and eight months old, just about to the day. Thirty-seven multiplied by three hundred and sixty-five was thirteen thousand five hundred and five. Plus twelve days for twelve leap years was thirteen thousand five hundred and seventeen. Eight months counting from his birthday in October forward to this date in June was two hundred and forty-three days. Total of thirteen thousand seven hundred and sixty days since he was born. Thirteen thousand seven hundred and sixty days, thirteen thousand seven hundred and sixty nights. He was trying to place this particular night somewhere on that endless scale. In terms of how bad it was. Truth was, it wasn't the best night he had ever passed, but it was a long way from being the worst. A very long way. - Author: Lee Child
Playing Sports quotes by Lee Child
#51. A first-rate college library with a comfortable campus around it is a fine milieu for a writer. There is, of course, the problem of educating the young. I remember how once, between terms, not at Cornell, a student brought a transistor set with him into the reading room. He managed to state that one, he was playing "classical" music; that two, he was doing it "softly"; and that three, "there were not many readers around in summer." I was there, a one-man multitude. - Author: Vladimir Nabokov
Playing Sports quotes by Vladimir Nabokov

Playing Sports quotes by John W. Rogers, Jr.

Playing Sports quotes by Kim Clijsters
#54. Playing music to me is as close to having super powers as you can have. - Author: John Mayer
Playing Sports quotes by John Mayer
#55. Theatre is probably the only form of free expression, just as theatre is likely to be the only way to escape from the grip of the ego and separate reality.

In theatre you can say and do anything, because you are clearly playing a part and whatever you say and do is not identified with yourself.

In theatre you free yourself from the idea of yourself and you can give space to everything you are, being serious about it, but without the dangers and consequences that derive from being serious about it. - Author: Franco Santoro
Playing Sports quotes by Franco Santoro
#56. Professional bodybuilding is a sport of total dedication. You must dedicate every aspect of every day to the attainment of your goals if you want to succeed. It is not enough to merely go to the gym to "work out." You must put all of your concentration and focus on each rep, on each set, on each exercise to have a successful workout. - Author: Nasser El Sonbaty
Playing Sports quotes by Nasser El Sonbaty
#57. Cheating, especially the mental kind - because when we desire something we shouldn't, the ravenous hunger for it consumes each fantasy playing through our immoral brains - can rot a relationship, sending its skeleton to the graveyard of "what should have been. - Author: Gail McHugh
Playing Sports quotes by Gail McHugh

#60. But they don't deserve to be winning!"
"And who does in this world, Roland? Only the gifted and the beautiful and the brave? What about the rest of us, Champ? What about the wretched, for example? What about the weak and the lowly and the desperate and the fearful and the deprived, to name but a few who come to mind? What about losers? What about failures? What about the ordinary fucking outcasts of this world - who happen to comprise ninety percent of the human race! Don't they have dreams, Agni? Don't they have hopes? Just who told you clean-cut bastards own the world anyway? Who put you clean-cut bastards in charge, that's what I'd like to know! Oh, let me tell you something. All-American Adonis : you fair-haired sons of bitches have had your day. It's all over, Agni. We're not playing according to your clean-cut rules anymore - we're playing according to our own! The Revolution has begun! Henceforth the Mundys are the master race! Long live Glorious Mundy! - Author: Philip Roth
Playing Sports quotes by Philip Roth
#61. When you study history and look at every civilization that has grown up and died off, they all leave one remnant: a major sports colosseum at the heart of their capital. Our fate can be different; but only if we start doing things differently. - Author: Thomas L. Friedman
Playing Sports quotes by Thomas L. Friedman
#62. These emotions, this love, this fear, this gratitude, this relief, the grief – none of it really
exists. None of it has mass or location, none of it can be weighed or photographed. None of
these emotions last, none of them can be measured – except in that very moment when we're
feeling them. They're like music – once the notes are played, they disappear. They only exist
in that moment in time. Love isn't merely something we feel, it's something we create –
something we have to keep creating in each and every moment. It's a song we have to keep
playing.
Because we know it doesn't really exist. We can't hold it. We can't lock it away. We can't
insure it. It's just a melody we play on and on. Our own Songline. We can only go on playing
it, moment by moment, until we're all out of moments.
It seems sort of pointless, striving so hard for perfection in something that doesn't really
exist. But, my, what a symphony it is.
And it's funny really, because for something that doesn't exist, it seems to be the only
thing that human beings never run out of. As long as we have faith in its magic, love is the
only thing that lasts. - Author: Sarah MacManus
Playing Sports quotes by Sarah MacManus
#63. The most difficult part of playing Christ was that I had to keep up the image around the clock. As soon as the picture finished, I returned home to Sweden and tried to find my old self. It took six months to get back to normal. - Author: Max Von Sydow
Playing Sports quotes by Max Von Sydow
#64. The good quarterbacks in this league, if you're not playing your best, sometimes will win a game for you - Author: Kerry Rhodes
Playing Sports quotes by Kerry Rhodes
#65. I can't relate to the process of just disappearing and writing a record, all at the same time, followed by the sort of drudgery of going out on tour and trying to recreate the record, playing the same 12 songs every night. - Author: Andrew Bird
Playing Sports quotes by Andrew Bird
#66. But very early they understood that playing was somewhat suspect, allowed through indulgence, a trivial pastime soon outgrown, and only about twice removed from sin. Pleasure was only once-removed. - Author: Jetta Carleton
Playing Sports quotes by Jetta Carleton
#67. Caregiving offers many fringe benefits, including the sheer sensory delight of nourishing and grooming, sharing, and playing. But caregiving does buttonhole you; you're stitched in one place ... Paul wasn't on a learning curve but seemed trapped in a circle. He's swoop forward only to loop back again and fall to earth. - Author: Diane Ackerman
Playing Sports quotes by Diane Ackerman
#68. Festivals are unique. They can be the best of times or the worst. You're not playing to the converted. But those are the best shows - to see if you can make new friends and entertain them. - Author: Andrew W.K.
Playing Sports quotes by Andrew W.K.
#69. I've got some other great teammates like Dallas Robinson and Johnny Quinn on the men's side who have been tremendous at showing Christ's love.

We hope to grow Christianity throughout our sport. - Author: Elana Meyers

Playing Sports quotes by Red Auerbach
#71. I don't care who's playing. Even if it's my favorite artist, I'm probably not gonna go and see him. - Author: Etta James
Playing Sports quotes by Etta James
#72. We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment. - Author: Alan W. Watts
Playing Sports quotes by Alan W. Watts
#73. One of the best years of my life was the very last one of my career. Playing for Rangers was my dream and it meant everything to my family. - Author: Andy Gray
Playing Sports quotes by Andy Gray
#74. Well, I think the first piece of music I ever heard that I really loved was 'Salome's Dances' by Richard Strauss. I played that 12-inch, 78 record, and I stood up on an ottoman to play it on a big Victrola and I'd just keep playing it and playing it. - Author: Mike Stoller
Playing Sports quotes by Mike Stoller
#75. I'm more into MMA than any other sport. I watch a lot of the UFC fights. I have since it first came onto the scene. - Author: Jason Statham
Playing Sports quotes by Jason Statham
#76. Concentrate on defense because the offense will come. - Author: Andrew Bogut
Playing Sports quotes by Andrew Bogut
#77. Relaxation is a physical and moral necessity. Animals, even to the simplest and dullest, have their games, their sports, their diversions. The toil-worn artisan, stooping and straining over his daily task, which taxes eye and brain and limb, ought to have opportunity and means for an hour or two of relaxation after that task is concluded. - Author: Horace Greeley
Playing Sports quotes by Horace Greeley
#78. It's you and me, and all you have to do is breathe. I'm going to take care of everything else. - Author: Melissa Cutler
Playing Sports quotes by Melissa Cutler
#79. Playing hard to get is not the way to win me over. I'm definitely more for the girl who can smile and laugh all the time and just have a good time! - Author: Taylor Lautner
Playing Sports quotes by Taylor Lautner
#80. Life is a full-contact sport, and there's a score up on the board. - Author: Phil McGraw
Playing Sports quotes by Phil McGraw
#81. Sport that consumed me for over two decades ... is now gone. Now it's just me. No pressure, no expectations, no need to be fast, good, strong or to even improve. Yet I can't let go of this idea that I always need to be more than I am. And it is eating me alive. - Author: Clara Hughes
Playing Sports quotes by Clara Hughes
